Welcome to adulthood, Alexandra. Well, thanks!
As I mentioned earlier this week, today is my birthday. I am the ripe legal age of 18. It has been a wonderful, beautiful day and I have all of the truly wonderful people in my life to thank for that. Y'all are really special.
Being 18 now is a little scary. All day, I've had this fear that I, the model citizen that I am, will be pulled over for some stupid offense and be held fully accountable for it because, in the eyes of the law, I am now an adult... dun dun dun....
People now expect me to be somewhat competent in the real world and to understand the way bureaucracy works. I am not prepared for this. The DMV is a scary place, as is the line at Chipotle.
Adulthood is a process, so here's to making a few jarring mistakes in the near future! Yay!
